Was surprised to hear that Jarhead took in $28.7 million, but everyone’s raving about how Chicken Little defied expectations (box-office wise). Not to be a party-pooper or anything, but I really don’t see what the big hooplah’s about. Dinosaur basically did the same amount of business over five years ago, adjusted for inflation. Actually—adjusted for inflation, Dinosaur did even better. And when you consider the fact that Robots did far better pre-Oscar season, and that Chicken Little is likely to drop off steeply in the coming weeks, I wouldn’t feel much desire to celebrate at all if I was at the House of the Mouse.
